Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mansfield Center, CT

Establishing paternity means determining a child's legal father when the child is born to unmarried parents. Children benefit from having two involved parents and it gives them a sense of belonging. Other benefits to establishing paternity are financial support for the mother and child, life and health insurance, inheritance, social security, and veteran's benefits. Once paternity is established, the father can add his name to the birth certificate.

In Mansfield Center, CT, paternity can be established voluntarily at the hospital when the baby is born if both parents agree to sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form. This form should not be signed if there is a doubt about who the father of the child is. Instead, it is important to obtain DNA testing to prove paternity before agreeing to sign the legal document.

If the mother and alleged father do not agree to sign the Acknowledgement of Paternity, paternity can be established through the court system. The court will order DNA testing for paternity and the mother, alleged father, and baby will all need to be tested.

Experts Say...

Dolan Divorce Lawyers, PLLC in Connecticut explain DNA testing and establishing paternity. "When parents are unmarried, the father may need to prove his relationship to the child. If both parents agree, the father can sign a document acknowledging himself as the father. If the parties do not agree, a man who believes he is the child's father must file forms for a DNA test." Once paternity is established, they explain, the court may order child support payments and the father may seek custody or visitation orders. Custody and visitation orders are made in the best interest of the child. The law firm goes on to say, "...it is important to remember that paternity is no guarantee of custody or even visitation. A parenting schedule must support the best interests of the child, which considers the child's health, educational and social needs."
